Patricia Joyce Hayes, age 90 passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of February 13, 2022 in Cleveland, Georgia. She was born September 26, 1931 in San Francisco, California. She was preceded in death by her mother, Dolores Liebing Shope and beloved eldest son Robert Wayne Kennedy. She leaves behind her devoted husband D. Jack Hayes who loved her for 54 years. A mother of 7 children, 17 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great grandchild being a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great great grandmother was her greatest joy. Patricia gave up a career singing light opera, opting rather to devote herself to children, always in some form or another. But in 1966, she met and fell in love with her husband Jack and became a business woman, him always noting the fact that, with her by his side, they could (and did) achieve great successes, giving them the opportunities to see and experience the world in ways that most people never have the chance to do. She leaves behind a family of faith, formed always by her own example of trusting God in good times and bad, in happy or sad. She is deeply loved in both life and death.
